This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Street Cup motorcycles, made from 2017 onward.
The Triumph Street Cup is based on the Street Twin platform with a 900cc liquid-cooled SOHC parallel twin engine with a 270 degree firing order, though tuned slightly differently — with more mid-range. Triumph says that between 2750 and 4750 rpm it makes 18% more torque and 22% more peak power. It puts this down through a five-speed transmission and a chain.
The Street Cup is like a sportier Bonneville with (dare I type the words) “café racer” aesthetics. It has longer forks with a steeper steering-head angle, different handlebars, and a cowl that makes it go a lot faster.
The Triumph Street Cup is very similar to those for other motorcycles with similar engines in the Triumph Modern Classics.

What you need to service the Triumph Street Cup
Servicing the Triumph Street Cup is just like servicing another modern British 900cc twin.
|Part||Triumph 900cc Street Twin/Cup engine spec|
|Oil||Triumph recommends 10W/40 or 10W/50 semi or fully synthetic motorcycle engine oil that meets specification API SH (or higher) and JASO MA, such as Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) engine oil, sold as Castrol Power RS Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) in some countries. A high-quality alternative is Motul 300V.|
|Oil filter||Replace the oil filter every time you change the oil. Use Triumph part number T1218001, which fits a lot of motorcycles. You can also use Hiflofiltro HF204RC which has a neat nut on the end.|
|Brake fluid||Triumph motorcycles need DOT 4 brake fluid (the 900cc range has a clutch cable, so you don’t need fluid for the clutch).|
|Coolant||Triumph uses Hybrid Organic Acid Technology coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. Zerex G05 is a HOAT coolant that meets this spec.|
|Front brake pads||Standard brake pads code is T2027535. The equivalent part number for EBC brakes is FA142HH.|
|Rear brake pads||Use original part number T2022955. The equivalent part number for EBC brakes is FA214/2HH.|
|Spark plugs||NGK code LMAR8A-9. Note they’re sold individually. Make sure they’re gapped to 0.9mm (+0.0, -0.1mm) with an appropriate spark plug gap tool.|
|Air filter||The part number for the air filter is T2201057. You can also use K&N part TB-9016.|

General information about the Triumph Street Cup
The Triumph Street Cup is designed to capitalise on both the popularity of the Triumph Street Twin and of “café racer” styling in general.
Say what you like about that trend, the Triumph Street Cup is really nice to look at in the flesh. It catches the eye as much as the Thruxton does, and probably would appeal to a similar kind of owner.
On top of that, the Street Cup is a platform Triumph thinks people will customise a lot. So they offer a range of over 120 parts you can add to the Street Cup, from aluminium levers, adjustable piggy back FOx shocks, a tail tidy, and LED indicators.
Other than that, the specs of the Street Cup are just adequate. Peak power of 54 hp and even fewer kW isn’t that exciting, as isn’t the 2-piston Nissin caliper gripping the single 310mm disc up front.
So the Street Cup isn’t a fast bike, but one rather that looks like it might go fast. Which it might, in the hands of the right rider…
